Triangular theory of love

The triangular theory of love describes love in an interpersonal connection on three different scales: intimacy, passion, and commitment. Different stages and types of love can be explained as dissimilar combinations of these three elements; for instance, the relation emphasis of each component changes over point in time as an adult romantic relationship develops. As said by the author of the theory, psychologist Robert Sternberg, a connection or relation based on a single element is less likely to continue to exist than one based on two or more.
